People use public transportation such as Lynx rather than their own vehicles for reasons including economy, convenience, and reduced emissions. Some transit riders simple prefer to relax while letting a professional driver deal with the traffic.
While you are more likely to be injured while driving your own vehicle than while aboard a bus or public transit, serious injuries, and fatalities do occur in accidents involving buses, trains, light rail, and hired transport. An Orlando bus accident lawyer could provide guidance on this matter.
The first thing Lynx representatives will attempt to do is have passengers complete forms. The details you provide on these forms can be used against you during a lawsuit if it’s beneficial to Lynx. Anything that could end up helping you and hurting Lynx could go undiscovered.
After the forms are completed, Lynx will most likely try and get statements on the record from passengers involved in the bus accident. They will use people who have been trained to ask questions in a fashion that could cause you to give an answer that ultimately harms your case against them. Things like this are exactly why we tell our clients to NOT provide any type of statement without an attorney present.
The final thing that Lynx will do involves offering a settlement amount. Representatives will reach out to the injured passengers or their family and give an offer way below what the case is worth. In order to accept the offer, they will ask you to sign a settlement agreement that waives your right to file suit against them.
